Forum: texts Subject: Is Internet Archive suitable to be used as storage for another website?

I want to make a website which has many public domain and free for distribution files.
I’d like to know if links to files stored on Internet Archive will always work, or could they someday stop working?

Other web sites do this, for example LibriVox uses Internet Archive as its storage for audio books. Obviously the files are of interest anyway to IA so it's a win win.

Cool, I really hope that IA doesn't change the address of files
